Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Catch an Evening Cicada
This insect can appear during two different time frames each day.
In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, there are a few insects that have the chance to appear at multiple times during the day, rather than during a single block of time. One of these is the evening cicada, and it’s now available to capture on islands in the Northern Hemisphere.
The evening cicada will appear on islands in the Northern Hemisphere from July to August. According to AllGamers, players with islands in the Southern Hemisphere can encounter this insect from January to February. Evening cicadas can appear on the sides of trees between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m., and then again from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Like other types of cicadas, the evening cicada will make noise as it hangs on the side of a tree. Check out our gameplay clip below to hear the noise the evening cicada makes. That way, you’ll know exactly what to listen for when you’re trying to track down one of these insects in your own game.
Evening cicadas can be sold for 550 Bells each at Nook’s Cranny, or for even more if you sell them to Flick when he visits your island. However, before you sell these bugs, remember that you’ll need to donate one to Blathers at the museum if you want to finish your museum’s insect collection.
Tracking down one of every insect in New Horizons will likely take you quite a bit of time. That being the case, check out the ChargePlay Clutch from HyperX. It can extend your device’s battery life so you can play New Horizons (and other Switch games) for a longer period of time before having to charge your Switch. Head over to HyperX’s website to learn more about the ChargePlay Clutch and the company’s other Switch accessories.
